In another blow struck for nationalism– not only for America’s, but for the independence of other sovereign nations who may take up the chance to reassert their liberty of action– the President has withdrawn the United States from the Paris climate thinging-a-jig. The AP reports:
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said Thursday he was withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement, striking a major blow to worldwide efforts to combat climate change and distancing the country from many allies abroad. He said the U.S. would try to negotiate re-entry on better terms.
“As of today, the United States will cease all implementation of the nonbinding Paris accord,” Trump said during a White House Rose Garden announcement. Suggesting renegotiating re-entry was not a major priority, he said, “If we can, great. If we can’t, that’s fine.”
–lolz Classic Trump in those comments. “If we can, great. If we can’t, that’s fine.” Truly, unironically Alpha.
